My name is Polly!

Labrador Retriever Dog for adoption in Boston, Massachusetts - Polly

I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Polly's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.

Polly's Story...
Update: After Polly spent a few days in her foster home it was discovered that she most likely has severely limited sight or is blind.

She is still a wonderful girl and will happily chase tennis balls (she can do this by listening). Polly is adept at adjusting to her new environment and memorizes where things are. At her foster home she even goes up and down stairs like a pro.

Please, please help us find this girl a home. She is not a hard dog to have around at all. She is so smart and adapts so easily. She really needs a home. Obviously when her family figured out she was blind she was dumped at her local shelter. Unbelievably this was after someone had irresponsibly bred her several times. She most likely has a degenerative retinal problem that can run in Labs.

We thought this girl was just a dolly - so we named her Polly. She is a wonderful chocolate Lab. Miss Polly is about 4 years old and is a typical wiggly, "happy to see you", friendly Lab girl.

She is a smaller female at about 57 lbs. Polly still has plenty of enthusiasm for walks and loves to retrieve tennis balls. This girl is not a couch potato! She is ready to go for a ride or even a short run around the block. Her foster family loves her and says she is a peach of a girl.

Polly is up to date on all of her vet care and is ready for a new home.

"In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog."


If you would like to adopt Polly, please submit an adoption application from our website, and see our other great Labs who are looking for their forever homes, happy tails, and more!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Polly, a Boston Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Boston, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Boston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Boston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boston paves the way for another one to be saved.
